Opening of the visitor facilities of Allmannajuvet in Norway
On September 8th, 2016, the Norwegian Public Roads Administration opened the tourist attraction Allmannajuvet along National Tourist Route Ryfylke. In 2002, the world-renowned architect Peter Zumthor was commissioned by the Norwegian Public Roads Administration to design a tourist attraction in Allmannajuvet, in the north of Sauda. The facilities consist of a museum, a café, toilet and parking facilities, paths and stairs.

Through an ambitious process architects, engineers, electricians, painters, carpenters and other professionals contributed to a unique architectural artwork with unconventional solutions and uncompromising standards of accuracy. With his spectacular buildings in Allmannajuvet the architect Peter Zumthor once again created a historical monument in Norway that reminds of the hard times and the atrocious fates of the people. Allmannajuvet serves as a monument for mining and the tough times of workers at the end of the 19th century.
